Chilli Lobster

This was delicious and did not require fingers to eat. I am comparing it to eating chilli crab. That would be our local finger-licking good dish.

This fusion dish was made with the famous chilli crab sauce poured over a small lobster with mantou (Chinese bun) to soak up the remaining sauce.

Renulek's Wiosna 2015 WIP 11

The last round of this spring doily was revealed but after two false starts it is not done yet. In the first, I tatted 6 repeats before realizing that there should be 6 rings. So I started again but the chains in the first and second motif were different. Yes, all silly mistakes. Where did my mind go?

Black on Black

A popular image of a phoenix and a dragon. What I found unusual was the colour. It was the cover of a restaurant menu.

Lemon Meringue

Isn't that pretty? A sweet delight at the end of a lovely lunch.

Corona WIP 6

These motifs are not joined yet. The next round will do that but I had to block it first before I could continue as the chains were just out of control. A little too fiddly for my liking but I am anxious to see the end result.

Hoya pachyclada white

The other Hoya has flowered and ants are attracted to it. My Marigolds are still not doing as well as expected. It probably needs more sunlight. Although it has flowered, all the flowers are tiny.

Renulek's Wiosna 2015 WIP 10

I used Lizbeth size 40 Col. 657 Ocean turquoise dark and Col. 664 Ocean teal medium. I will use the same colours for the last round. Or maybe just use Seascape.

Kerabu Kacang Botol

I tried to duplicate what I ate but it just was not the same without the right herbs. However it was not too bad and it tasted quite good, not as sweet. Wood ear fungi was added for the crunch. I was tempted to add raw bean sprouts too but decided against it later.

Flying Home

I had the best kacang botol (4 angled bean) salad on board SQ from Bangkok to Singapore. I was inspired to try making it myself. Lets see how that goes.

I always enjoy my trips to Bangkok. I come home happy! Do you have a place that you would journey to over and over again?

Corona WIP 5

I started this round wanting to use all charcoal for all 12 motifs but after reading your comments in the earlier post, charcoal was alternately used with red burst. I am quite happy with the result.
